⁂ gimme five ⁂

I would like to say that I am serenely floating through the festive preparations like a floating focused goddess but that is so far from the truth I want to curl up and sleep for a few days. I've been working, decorating and shopping like a whirling dervish. I finally got to print my seasonal greetings cards late last night filling the house with the heady smell of flouro ink (circa 1980). It was a lovely few hours of production and I dreamed that I could do that all the time in a little cottage by the sea with only the wind and rain for company and a few squealing seagulls, a radio and a pot of finest printer's tea. Note how my dreams are of escape and isolation?
My co-designer has gone a.w.o.l so I can't offer to send her some of the cards so if any of my dearly beloved readers would like a card from me then just email me your address and I will send you one with love.
I hope you are all feeling organised, rested and heading towards the holidays with gusto.
I've a while to go yet.
